Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash. Leonard Cohen

Mirror, Mirror

by ~AnnaMariaDeMari

Get out
No more chances
Promises, promises
Take your sweet words and choke on them
We're done

Too late
Save the tears to water your lawn
I've cried too much, too long
Without you, babe
I'm strong

I love this. I wish I had been strong enough to say these words to certain men in my life

I'm sensing a disturbing theme lately. I'm glad I wasn't the one that made you feel that way.

Is this a follow-up? Life goes on with new beginnings and new characters. Hope this piece was cathartic. The heart anguishes, never sated.

So powerful. The words along with the photo makes it dynamite.
